Impracticle Video Quality
The course seems fine (I haven't finished watching it), but I don't understand why are people using this real media codec... these movies have ~5MB/min rate (at 320x240) and I made a test with divx3 (with mencoder, 2 pass encoding) and I obtained under 5MB/min and a very good quality for a 704x544 movie. This means that for these movies you would be able to obtain a much better quality and possibly smaller files (since the resolution is 5 times smaller than the one in my test, you would be able to drop down even more from the video stream).
